We at High Notes Avante Productions Inc believe music and words have the power to create social change, inspire, empower and give hope to those touched by mental illness. Our ‘image raising’ events feature world class performances and speakers, and showcase the lives and talents of artists and personalities who are living good lives despite having an existing or past mental health challenge. We aim to erase stigma, educate, create community and save lives by encouraging others to reach out and also share their stories. Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of. If 1 in 5 people are affected and we all know someone who suffers, we should show the same compassion and respect for those affected by mental illness as for those affected by physical illness. Our events are therapeutic for those affected and an eye opener for the community at large. We invite you to get involved because We ALL have a (mental health) story.
“Your kindness and empathy vis-à-vis our collective mental health struggles is unsurpassed.”
- Grammy Awarded Singer/Songwriter Dan Hill
